    When in Windows Explorer, I use the View/Folder Options pull-down, and get a screen message that states... "Restriction This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"

    How can I fix this or change the settings so I don't get this?

    I'm currently on Windows 98

    Depending on which version of Internet Explorer you have you have one of the following restrictions in your registry.
    NoBrowserOptions
    NoFolderOptions
    Go to start>run and type regedit Press enter
    Go to the toolbar>edit>find
    Type NoBrowserOptions

    If you find it, (in the right Pane) Delete it.
    If not, do the same for NoFolderOptions
    If you find it, delete it.

    Reboot.
